SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - September 23, 2010) -  Mogul Energy International, Inc. ("Mogul") (OTCBB: MGUY) (FRANKFURT: BKX) announced it has cancelled the Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Powderhorn Energy, LLC of Denver, Colorado and its financial partners (collectively "Powderhorn"). Powderhorn was unsuccessful, after several extensions to the LOI agreement, in securing the necessary funding for this drilling program.

With the cancellation of this LOI, Mogul has a commitment of funds from two additional sources to partially fund the drilling of the first two prospects in its current inventory of prospects. Additional discussions are currently taking place with other potential funding sources to equal or exceed Mogul's investment in each of these wells.

Mogul is continuing with the acquisition of the necessary oil, gas and mineral leases on each of these initial prospects. The requisite state permits to drill will be secured from the Texas Railroad Commission upon completion of the leasing and title clearance.
